TRANSITION TRIFFIDS IN TOWN - Energy Sculptures to expand the mind!

Strange but beautiful structures have

appeared this week in and around our town. Where are they from? What do they


Have no fear, the Transition Triffids are

friendly and are simply here to help. They landed from planet LC1, Low Carbon

One, the first in a series of planets that have successfully changed to a less

energy-hungry way of life.

Our dilemma with our energy supply has

travelled to the far corners of our galaxy. The Triffids have taken the form of

beautiful cedar tree sculptures to decorate our town. They also guide us to a

brave new world full of energy- saving champions.

St Paul's Church in

Devon Square is the latest to join the Low Carbon train gathering steam in our

town. A town proudly built around the pioneering concept of the railway. Some

were sceptical then about the coming of the railway, as indeed some are

sceptical now about our energy problems. The pioneers won over the doubters.

We hope you enjoy the Triffids and have as

much fun as we have had in creating them. more info on our 

website where all will be explained:

See if you can spot all FIVE SCULPTURES! GOOD LUCK

We thank everyone involved, you know who

you are.  We thank the Triffids and the

people of LC1 who allowed them to come and appear to us in our hour of need.

Say hello to the Low

Carbon future!

    Well done Transition Newton Abbot! I think this is a terrific initiative. Anything that gets people thinking about saving energy and how we can work towards a low-carbon future is a great idea in my book. Now let me see if I can spot all five sculptures...

    hello d2dts

    thanks for commenting and sorry you feel our sculptures are nonsense. we in fact are rather proud of them. I can assue you no public money was spent on these, it was all achieved with goodwill , volunteer labour, time and donations.

    we have had some positive feedback so we will just have to take yours on the chin. different strokes for different folks.

    we are more than happy to meet and talk about the ideas behind our sculptures if you would like to take up the offer.

    thanks helen for TNA

    I hope it wasn't public money that was used for this nonsense. If it was then someone needs sacking.
